Play time in Northeast Philly

Sum­mer­time fun: Free Philly Play sum­mer camp starts on Monday, Ju­ly 7.

Chil­dren ages 8-12 are in­vited to sign up for the free Philly Play sum­mer camp, which starts on Monday, Ju­ly 7. The Philly Play ini­ti­at­ive is led by City Coun­cil­man Bobby Hen­on. 

KO Sport­ing Goods, of South Phil­adelphia, donated more than $40,000 of sports equip­ment to the 10 Philly Play re­cre­ation cen­ters.

“I’m tre­mend­ously grate­ful to KO Sports and all our part­ners for their sup­port of Philly Play,” Hen­on said. “This equip­ment will go right to the kids par­ti­cip­at­ing in the pro­gram­ming.”

In the North­east, the equip­ment was provided to Vo­gt Re­cre­ation Cen­ter, 6700 Cot­tage St. in Ta­cony, and Pel­bano Re­cre­ation Cen­ter, 8101 Bustleton Ave. in Rhawn­hurst. Each re­cre­ation cen­ter will keep the equip­ment once the Philly Play sum­mer pro­gram­ming con­cludes on Aug. 13. Sum­mer campers and chil­dren from across Phil­adelphia will be in­vited to par­ti­cip­ate in a city­wide Philly Play Chal­lenge Event on Aug. 13 at Vo­gt Re­cre­ation Cen­ter.
